Einleitung

Benutze diese Anleitung , um die Haupt-Rückkamera des iPhones zu entfernen.

Anmerkung: Der Ausbau des Akkus erleichtert den Zugang zur Abdeckplatte des Verbinders der Rückkamera. Es ist jedoch nicht zwingend notwendig, den Akku auszubauen. Falls dein Akku besonders schwer zu entfernen ist, lass ihn drinnen und arbeite um ihn herum.

Bevor du anfängst, musst du den Akku deines iPhones auf unter 25% entladen. Ein geladener Lithium-Ionen Akku kann sich entzünden oder explodieren, fall er versehentlich beschädigt wird. Schalte dein iPhone aus, bevor du es auseinander baust.
  • Bevor du anfängst, musst du den Akku deines iPhones auf unter 25% entladen. Ein geladener Lithium-Ionen Akku kann sich entzünden oder explodieren, fall er versehentlich beschädigt wird.

  • Schalte dein iPhone aus, bevor du es auseinander baust.

  • Deine iPhone 4 Rückabdeckung ist entweder mit zwei Kreuzschlitzschrauben #000 oder Pentalobeschrauben von Apple (zweites Bild) befestigt. Schaue nach, um welche Schrauben es sich handelt, um sicher zu gehen, dass du den richtigen Schraubendreher zum Lösen hast.

  • Entferne die beiden 3,6 mm Pentalobe oder Kreuzschlitzschrauben #000 neben dem Dock Anschluss.

    • Achte darauf, dass der Schraubender-her korrekt sitzt, wenn du die Pentalobe Schrauben entfernst. Ihre Schraubköpfe können leicht beschädigt werden.

  • Wir empfehlen, die 5-Punkt-Schrauben beim Wiederzusammenbau durch passende Kreuzschlitzschrauben zu ersetzen. Unser Liberation Kit beinhaltet die Werkzeuge und Schrauben, die gebraucht werden, um die Pentalobe Schrauben durch Kreuzschlitzschrauben zu ersetzen.

Caution: New phones may contain T1 screw heads instead of Phillips.

any news on those screwdrivers? where can we buy them?

using something like the 18-compartment tray will GREATLY help with this one; there are over a dozen groups of parts. For re-assembly having a digital calipers to measure the 2.4 vs the 2.6mm screws also helps greatly.

My method for hardware management during delicate phone surgery is to take and print out on 8.5"x11' paper, one or more pictures of the open phone in various stages of disassembly, and then tape the screws to the appropriate spots on the pictures. Also write numbers on the pictures next the screws to indicate the order in which you removed them.

I use a plastic egg tray, I drop all the screws and small parts (like the camera) for each step into the same egg indentation. You can see that the screws are different lengths, so I don't put one screw into it's own spot. I used 5 egg indentations to replace my screen.

I did a successful surgery on my iPhone, be warned this is not for the faint of heart!

I've done iPod screen replacements, battery replacements, this is by far much more difficult and intricate.

Great write up! Thanks a million.

Jaysen Strange - Antwort

I've changed some iPod screens as well and that has been the least pleasant experience so far. Glue and the main connector that has to be unwrapped and connected from the rear where you have no feel or control where it belongs.

iPhone repair is complex, but doable and has very few "traps".

Couldn't even get both screws out of the bottom of the case. One was easy and other refuses to budge. Screws so small I can't see if it is turning or screw driver is properly seated. Sad I too have done screen replacements on other phones. Don't know any secrets to get the screw out

ckracht - Antwort

I also have a problem with seeing what is happening with some of those tiny little screws and parts. For other projects that I do, I use an Opti-Visor. It slips over your head and provides 10x magnification. ( You can find them on Amazon).

Yeah, it adds cost to the project and you would have to wait for delivery, but it sure makes a world of difference in seeing what you are working with / on.

On an early iPhone 4 I found that the #000 Phillips bit included in the 54 Bit Driver Kit didn't actually fit the screws. However the JIS #000 also in the kit did fit quite well. This is due to the JIS bits "thinner" design to prevent camming out of the slot. Otherwise everything went well. Looking forward to replacing the battery in my other phone that has the pentalobe screws. Glad I got the 54 Bit kit!

What does the park that is gold and next to the 4.8mm screw for the antenna? Looks like I am missing that part and almost positive that is why I can't pick up or connect to any wifi signals. I have the screw and the antenna from another phone that is working and tried it on the broken phone and still doesn't work. Only thing different is that gold metal piece to the left of that 4.8 mm screw. Can I buy that part? how do I attach it?

saam - Antwort

For organisation of the parts and for a much easier process of rebuilding i use a big magnetic flat surface with a grid drawn on it. Then I use a dry erase marker to make any notes I need and to number the parts in order as i disassemble . Believe me it saves a lot of time and hassle especially if you drop one of those tiny screws good luck finding it but when your working over the magnet and drop a screw its going to be right where it fell. At first I tried the piece of paper to keep organised but all it takes is one small slip and you move the paper too quick and your left with a jumbled bunch of screws and parts and a painstaking task of putting it all back correctly, aka a big waist of time and effort.

Remove the single 2.5 mm Phillips screw securing the battery connector to the logic board- for me this Phillips screw won't budge from its place have tried all the phillips combinations 000, 00, 0, 1 and the straight /slotted 1.5 mm but nothing. can some help me please purchased a replacement battery for my iPhone 4 but not able to do it just because of this screw.

Naved Zaidi - Antwort

If the screw head is not buggered, press the tip of a hot soldering iron to the screw for a second or two. Don't get it too hot, or you'll damage something.

splaye -

don't use hot soldering iron . the female outlet the battery plugs into is very fragile . for no extra money you can buy a battery that has magnetic tools specifically to pick this screw out . if worse comes to worse be certain the screw will come no looser then use tweezers and pick it out . the #1 fear with this technique is DO NOT DROP THE SCREW . I have done this and crawling on my hands and knees till I find it was depressing

I bought a Mmobiel branded replacement iphone 4 battery, but it doesn't fit – the pins on the connector are (very) slightly different in pitch to my original battery.

When reattaching this bracket make sure your Battery ribbon is already tucked underneath the battery with only the minimum clearance required. Then make sure the brackets overhang is over the battery ribbon. Dont try to slide it under the Ribbon.

crimney - Antwort

In Step 5 be EXTRA careful with the battery connector as the socket can come off extremely easy. This can mess up the replacement a little bit and cost you extra. Otherwise, this guide is excellent.

Good luck, fixers!

I fix(ed) it!

mateuszkus - Antwort

When removing this L shaped piece, it should be shown ON CAMERA where it came from and the exact position it was in while in the phone, I had to take 2 screws (not 1 like said in the video) out to get to this piece and once that second screw came up I didn't get a chance to see where this piece came from because it popped right out. I was extremely nervous but I believe I got it back in properly.

Just be careful when removing the battery with the plastic pull tab. On some units, they use so much glue that it's virtually impossible to take the battery.

In such an instance, you could use the iPod opening tool to assist (just be careful where you stick it!)

klubn - Antwort

use the iPod opening tool to pry gently under the battery from the outer edge of the phone and work towards the plastic tab. the tab is not actually attached to the battery itself, but a plastic sheet between the battery and inner frame. the adhesive on the battery tends to be under the edge of the battery nearest the center of the phone.

David Iwanicki - Antwort

Understand that the plastic pull tab is part of the phone. It sits under the battery like a tray and is not connected to the battery so it needs to stay in tact.

mattcfi - Antwort

once the iphone restarted, the battery was at 30%.

baldus - Antwort

This i think is the most diffucult part.

Because they use so much glue on it. I have to did this with so much force.

Glad that i didn't kill the circuit board when i took this out.

Shoung0690 - Antwort

My battery was so firmly glued in, it took a long time to slowly pry it loose. Patience is the key to this process. I could see easily damaging the circuit board by using too much force. The plastic tab did not help at all.

The ribbon cable attaching the new battery to the battery connector clip is longer than the original. I clicked the clip into the socket first and then was very careful to fold the excess while putting the battery back in so the ribbon cable didn't kink. One kink in this could sever the battery leads.

drathbun - Antwort

My ribbon cable was also longer than the original. How did you get it to not kink while placing the batter back into the phone? That seems to be my only hang up at the moment

cvbaseballsean22 -

Piece of cake! The hardest part was being sure the outer pentalobe screws were actually turning and I wasn't stripping them. Battery was glued firmly in, so I loosened it from the outside instead of using the plastic pull-tab. I pre-bent the battery connector neck before putting it back in and had no problems with it fitting in. Getting the battery connector aligned with the antenna piece underneath was a bit fiddly. Got the case back on, put in the new screws, and powered the phone on without problem. Had 40% charge, all seems well. Yippee!

chezbuttons - Antwort

Do NOT use a spudger or similar type of prising tool to try lift up the battery. Instead, just warm up the whole area with a hot air gun or hair drier to soften the glue.

The reason why I say don't use an implement to try lift the battery is because far too many times I've seen punctured & bent batteries come in to this workshop that have to be thrown out for safety reasons. It only takes a grain of sand, or a burr on the spudger and you're risking a potential cell rupture and potential fire.

Just use a bit of heat ( not a lot! ) to soften up the glue and it'll come away with the plastic pull tab.

Paul L Daniels - Antwort

These instructions don't mention putting the 2.5mm screw back in. I found this very challenging because it is so short, so very difficult to line it up to get it back in the hole, and very easy to drop it inside the phone. Take care.

robshopping - Antwort

Non problem with reassembly - just took patience - my is that the phone now does not want to charge the battery. It shows taht the battery is dead and charger needs to be connected but does not charge?

What have I not done coreectly - or at least what can I check to determine the problem?

Thanks

Richard Bebee - Antwort

Apparently it's not necessary to remove the battery, but try at least (I'm curious).

The battery was stuck (too much glue) and the plastic tab didn't help, and I ripped it...

So I use the plastic opening tool on the other side to remove really gently the battery, it was really really stucked with the glue... Now I'll know when I'll need to change it.

I put a little piece of tape to repair the plastic tab for the next time.

For the other part of the guide, it was a piece of cake and I'm a bad bad handyman :)

Thanks for the guide!

tasseb - Antwort

You are right. This is the reason why their is simpler guide: iPhone 4 Battery disconnection to be used when there is no necessity for removing the battery. Disconnection is sufficient for many fixes except replacement of the battery!

revher -

you have to remove the battery for digitizer replacement, however i would suggest removing it at the very last stage, i.e. step 24. cause it is easier to remove without the logic board being there

Winnie Lee -

Adhesive was holding battery VERY firmly, so during this step I used a hair blow dryer on low setting to carefully heat up the device. Then used the plastic tool to gently but firmly pry up one place on each edge. At first it felt like barely anything was happening, but within a few tries the adhesive gave away easily and the battery came right out.

misc - Antwort

The new battery from iFixit already had the cable properly folded, but before inserting the battery I used the plastic tool to press the fold closer to the battery body.

misc - Antwort

Before inserting the battery I put the contact clip into position. It has a hooked shape on one side which fits between the socket and the folded battery cable. If you try to position it AFTER the battery is installed the whole process is much more difficult. I used a tweezers to hold it in place while inserting the battery.

misc - Antwort

When inserting the battery I started by guiding the folded cable into position against the side of the contact clip, then proceeded to lay the battery in position. This made it very easy to have all parts in their original positions -- no need to fiddle with the battery cable or contact clip afterwards.

misc - Antwort

When pressing the battery connector into the socket, the first time I pressed from bottom to top. That didn't work because there is a little tab at the top of the connector which must fit into a tiny notch or else the connector won't lay flat properly. Pressing the connector from top to bottom worked easily.

misc - Antwort

Needle-nosed tweezers were very helpful when lining up the screws. After everything was reassembled I tried powering up the device, but the battery had insufficient charge. I plugged it in and immediately the screen displayed a battery with a thin red line (illustrating no charge). After 25 minutes the device sprang to life and indicated a 10% charge. At 70 minutes the battery indicated 30% charge, and at that rate should be fully charged in under 4 hours. It's fixed!!

misc - Antwort

Battery is in, phone fires up, charger works. This is the first 10 minute job I've ever completed in 10 minutes, thank you!

arkay - Antwort

Why they didn't say this, I have no idea: HEAT UP THE BACK OF THE PHONE! This helps the adhesive give so much easier, worth the extra 2 minutes to make sure you don't tear anything.

Addison Rasmussen - Antwort

super easy, battery had plenty of glue for what ever reason, I put the screw in 1st then set the battery and was easy to set the new battery. Charge was at 94% strange seeing it next to my Iphone 6 but glad I did it as now I can use it for music and save the battery on the main phone. Thanks for a easy instruction guide.

Greg Wischmeyer - Antwort

ok new problem, drained battery as instructed, pugged it in and nothing 3 different cords and also my car charger were tried, nothing worked removed battery and checked contacts a few times still nothing, any ideas? thanks

Greg Wischmeyer - Antwort

Strictly speaking re-assembly is NOT the exact reverse of dismantling. In particular do not put the battery in and then try to plug in the connector, Rather, start by plugging in the connector (having straightened the ribbon-wire attaching it to the battery) and only then re=position the battery on its (gluey) base. Also I used a wooden cocktail stick to position the antenna connector correctly (pushing the stick through the hole in the antenna piece and into the threaded base where the screw will eventually go) and then I held it all in place (temporarily) with a tiny blob of Bluetac until I managed to successfully withdraw the cocktail stick and fit the proper screw.

This was super simple. My camera was not focusing after a previous company replaced it due to a faulty flash. I decided to take things into my own hands...no pun intended.

The instructions are super simple and easy to follow. Be aware of the loose clip under the connector - mine flew out - and I was worried I wouldn't figure out how to get it back in.

I also had to use a #0 screwdriver...#00 was too large.

I couldn't get the battery out...so, I was just super careful that the phone was off, and remained off during the repair.

Out with the defective camera...in with the functioning camera...replaced a couple of screws and the battery connector. Tested the camera prior to replacing everything.

Thank you ifixit!

Hi guys. I just did it ! I would not describe it as super easy, but thanks to the screw template provided file, even the now famous pressure contact can not be lost ;-)

I just wanted to comment, not only to praise iFixit (and myself), but also to mention two side effects I had to overcome:

-First, when finished, the power button did not work (I had to plug the Dock Connector to start the phone). As I the power button is not so far from the rear camera, I figured out something went wrong in the reassembly. Since I had just done it once, I thought I could do it a second time, so I removed the newly assembled camera and reassembled it with extra caution. At the end, the power button worked as expected.

-Second: each time I restarted the phone after reassembly (twice, then), the SIM card would not unlock after the PIN code was entered. I had to remove and reinsert the SIM card for the PIN code to finally unlock it.

Otherwise, everything went smoothly, thanks again to the iFixit guys !

Thank you for the guide on the Camera replacement. However it is not necessary to remove the battery entirely but just to disconnect it. The battery is usually firmly glued and a lot of time is wasted. This guide on Camera replacement (3142) should not include the full guide "iPhone 4 Battery Replacement (3141)" but a shorter guide "iPhone 4 Battery disconnection (24135)" which I wrote. Unfortunately, my changes have be denied without any comment. In my recent edits of this guide (which have been denied too!) I also mentioned that when extracting the camera, you can unfortunately unplug some of the connectors located at the bottom right of the camera. They should be firmly plugged again otherwise (and this was my case) the Iphone may not power on. If you agree with my changes, could you look at my edits in the history of this guide and insert them again because they will answer to some of the general questions above.
